A Trip To Mabou Ridge

A march from the pen of Cape Breton fiddler Dan Hughie MacEachern. It was also the title of a record from two other CB musicians, Teresa and Marie MacLellan. More info about Dan Hughie can be found in the comments to Fraser’s Jig, another of his tunes: http://thesession.org/tunes/8206 The Land of My Love 2CD of DHM is sadly out-of-print; I recently acquired a rare used copy. Great music, he was more than a bit fiery, very accomplished technically, very much out of the old days; one track even features what in the US is called "beating straws," where a friend whacks the fiddle strings with knitting needles etc to keep time. Never heard that from a Scottish violinist before.

Dawn Beaton Version

Dawn Beaton plays it as the first tune here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YC5X6QM8nnw She uses so many grace notes, it sounds more like the bagpipes than the fiddle. Enjoy all those first fingered grace ontes on the fiddle.
